Tampa Bay Downs 5 March 2010 - Post-mortem

This was a much better day, although I completed missed a couple Pick-3s again. I'll probably stick to win bets exclusively from here on.

I picked winners in 9 races (placing 11 bets), and hit 3 of them. In race 6, my 2 picks came in 2nd and 4th. In race 8, my pick came in 2nd, and in race 10, my pick came in 3rd.

So, in 9 races, I had: 3 winners, 2 place and 1 show. 66% in the money is ok.

The bottom line is a 13.40 profit, which would have been 21.40 without those Pick-3s. It doesn't wipe out the terrible performance on the 3rd, but it comes close to balancing out. I have the form for the 7th. I hope I pick more like today than Wednesday.

Tampa Bay Downs 5 March 2010

All win bets are $2. Pick 3 and Pick 4 are $1 bets.

Race 1 - 8 Ocala Cruz Missile (4/1)
  • Result - 3-4-9. Ocala Cruz Missile came in 6th, went off at 8-1

Race 2 - Pick 3 (1) (2,5) (1,8) $4 total
  • 1 scratched. 1a heavy favorite.
  • Result - 2-1a-3

Race 3 - 2 Stack the Deck (9/2)
  • Result - 3-1-5. 2 led for 1/4 mile, and then completely tanked.

Race 4 - 8 Bankers High Yield (4/1)
  • Result - 8-3-7. Bankers High Yield went off 2/1, but a win is nice. Pays $6, gain of $4

Race 5 - 4 Lady Ballavale (9/2); Pick 3 (4) (6,8) (2,6) $4 total
  • Result - 8-2-1. Lady Ballavale wasn't even close.

Race 6 - 6 Stormy Ballad (15/1); 8 All the Figs Men (3/1)
  • Result - 3-8-7-6. 6 led early, 8 charged late.

Race 7 - 2 She'sfitfortaking (12/1); 6 Pat Pat (8/1)
  • 6 scratched
  • Result - 2-10-4. 2 went off 11/1. Pays 24.80, gain of 22.80.

Race 8 - 5 Silver Prism (4/1)
  • Result - 3-5-2

Race 9 - 1 Game Ball (7/2)
  • Result - 1-9-7. 1 went off 3/1. Paid 8.60, gain of 6.60.

Race 10 - 8 Kathy's N Angel (5/1)
  • Result - 3-4-8


That's 11 win bets for $22. 2 Pick 3s for $8.

$30 in bets returned 43.40 for a 13.40 profit. I'm thinking that the Pick-3s are a less good idea, and may just sprinkle in some more win bets.

Tampa Bay Downs 3 March 2010 - Post mortem

All the picks cost $60, and $32 of that was the Pick 6. Pick 6 may be the biggest return, but it requires a ton of money to fund, and so we probably won't be playing too many of those.

None of the picks hit, but that doesn't mean they were all bad. Of the 9 races where I picked a winner, 1 horse was scratched, 2 came in 2nd, 1 came in 3rd and 2 came in 4th. That's 3 horses in 8 races in the money, and 5 in a decent position at the finish (I think 4th is a decent position). I only hit 1 of 3 in both Pick 3s.

So far, down $58 on minimum bets (although it should have only been 26. Damned Pick 6 siren song).
